Re: Power Supply Reliability Question

Were all these psu's running in the same house, and if so how old is the house??? Might want to get a ups and see if your problems go away, could be a short in the house somewhere. Oh and update your fire insurance.

Some overclockers say, an hour of linx or occt linpack is worth about 48hours of prime95, stability wise.

Re: GMC H-80 ATX Mid-Tower Gaming PC Case Review

GMC's slogan is "Design and Innovate". Right, the two cases I have seen from them are "toy like and gimmicky". A fan door, wow....

Well I guess there won't be that "wife is pissed" thread this month, bigadv is the only way to keep it affordable for me.

Re: [email protected] on Core i7 processors for big points

Nice going on the double bigadv hit today, I to am running vmmare on wireless, the problems that I have had have been with not enough power from the motherboard or usb port to have a strong signal. I moved one machine very close to my router and both machines seem to have benefited from it.

Re: NZXT Tempest EVO Mid Tower Case Review

Sorry to be a pest but could you do one more tape on it, the screw hole for the 120mm dual rad on top are off set, could give me a measurement from the motherboard tray to the set of screw hole closest??

Re: NZXT Tempest EVO Mid Tower Case Review

So it might work if you keep the rad under 50mm, also the middle hard drive bay, would you happen to know the measurement from the cd rom bay to the top for the bottom bay, might be able to put a single 120mm rad in there.

Re: NZXT Tempest EVO Mid Tower Case Review

In the Lexa S you were able to mount a radiator inside the case, though you would have to run the fans on the outside of the case. If you choose to run water cooling in the NZXT Tempest EVO a dual radiator will fit beneath the existing fans.
How wide of a rad will fit??
